CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Joe Gibbs said Tuesday his grandson Ty Gibbs will compete in 14 more Xfinity Series races this season after his surprising first victory.
Ty Gibbs won Saturday’s Xfinity Series race in his first career NASCAR national start on the road course at Daytona International Speedway. The 18-year-old had never raced above the ARCA Series and jumped two levels for his Xfinity debut.
He’s the sixth driver to win in his Xfinity Series debut but the first to win in his very first national series race.
Ty Gibbs will race this year for both the ARCA championship and rookie of the year in the Xfinity Series. His schedule is set by his father, Coy.
“They’ve tried to pick out the races where it would help him the most, and he would grow the most and get the most experience at those tracks,” Joe Gibbs said. “I think they’ve done a good job of laying things out.”
Ty Gibbs will race next at Phoenix in March, and five of his 14 remaining races will be on road courses. The No. 54 Toyota will be filled the rest of this year by Kyle Busch, Martin Truex Jr., Denny Hamlin and Ty Dillon.
“Winning this past weekend in Daytona was really a dream come true for me,” Ty Gibbs said. “I can’t wait to get back behind the wheel again. I know I still have a lot to learn, but I have great teams behind me in both ARCA and Xfinity and I’m so fortunate to have the opportunity to work with all of them. I’m just really excited for the rest of the year.”
Ty Gibbs won eight ARCA races the last two seasons. He had to be 18 to race in the Xfinity Series.

Love Island and former TOWIE star, Kady and Myles, also deserve a place on the "most amazing homes" list.
The pair announced in 2019 that they became home owners and purchased a bungalow in Hertfordshire.
Not long after, they created an Instagram account for their new home in February, called Our Bungalow Project, which is run by Kady.19The home was quite run down but now boasts six huge bedrooms and is a huge three storey houseCredit: @ourbungalowproject_/Instagram 19The entire home is sleek and modernCredit: @ourbungalowproject_/Instagram 19The couple has documenting the entire transformation on their home accountCredit: @ourbungalowproject_/Instagram

The bungalow was quite old fashioned when they purchased the property and was in desperate need of some sprucing up.
Two years later, the couple have completely redesigned their home and transformed it into a stunning three storey and six bedroom house with a super luxurious finish.Rochelle and Marvin Humes Instagram account: @homehumes 19It's no secret Rochelle and Marvin Humes live in a super luxurious mansion in EssexCredit: Instagram
